“Delicious!!!”
Reviewed October 30, 2013

We were staying at a resort nearby and decided to venture to Sakura by bike after reading the reviews on TripAdvisor.
It is a small restaurant owned by an old Vietnamese lady that cooks and serves the food.
I'm still remembering the enormous and fantastic Seafood spring rolls. We also had some rice, noodles and beef satay. All dishes were great in both sizes and flavors!
Definitely go there if you can!

“Definitely worth a visit”
Reviewed October 27, 2013

Don't let the 'in the sticks' location of Sokura put you off, make the effort and go visit - it's absolutely worth it - the food is really excellent.

At first glance the simple, open layout and basic decor of Sokura doesn't provide any hint of the culinary treat you're about to enjoy, in fact you may be mistaken for thinking you're in the wrong place having read the reviews on here.

But all that starts to change once you begin talking with the enthusiastic, enigmatic owner/chef who is more than happy to provide as much menu advice as you need.

Any doubt is utterly eradicated once the delicious, bountiful, freshly prepared dishes start to arrive.

And the bill is pleasant too. Big thumbs up for Sokura. If you're on Phu Quoc, support this excellent local, family restaurant.

“Probably the best restaurant on Phu Quoc!”
Reviewed October 16, 2013

We stayed in a hotel nearby and often went for lunch or dinner. Splendid prices and low prices. Kiem, the owner/chef speaks perfect English and is really kind. Try the Tamarind Shrimps, they are amazing!

We had a lovely meal and wonderful conversation with the owner about her experiences in Vietnam and in Phu Quoc. The food was all very delicious and reasonably priced. An excellant place for a meal and so much more.
